London Fields Urban Meadow

Warming fresh summer scents look set to bloom once again, as the middle stretch of London Fields is turned into a beautiful floral meadow with wild flowers and grasses.

We were treated last summer to an oasis of brightly coloured foliage with a winding path carved through the middle to get lost within, ramble amongst and muse upon.

The delicious aroma was instantaneous as soon as you entered the park and we’re already feeling zen just reminiscing.

Get lost, get found and wander in and around in London Fields Urban Meadow opening for enticement this June.

Hoxton Radio Live at McQueen April 24th

Thursday night’s alright for party so get a few beverages in and strut on down to the salubrious surroundings of McQueen on Leonard Street for some tasteful sounds and beats.

You’ll find yourself gazing around at the décor and wall hangings, while getting more comfy in the leather seats and furry rugs under the feet.

While your eyes wander round we will provide the backdrop with some beats gently pulsing with some electro, house and deep disco 12 inches.

For a more gentile and high brow way to finish your Thursday and start the weekend, join Frank McWeeny and Jay Easton for Hoxton Radio Live at McQueen on Thursday the 24th of April from 7pm.




VON: Elsewhere at KK Outlet

It’s so very nice to get a like or a favourite for one of your funnier posts, a RT from a celeb also brings a warm feeling but sometimes we need a bit of shut off from SMS static.

With so much digital distortion crowding our airwaves the next exhibition at KK Outlet looks to bring rest-bite from all the 01000101 transmissions.

VON: Elsewhere explores the moments when we slip away from our surroundings, detaching and floating free of the norn. The sketches are tranquilly penciled in grey, black and white erasing your blurred lines.

Aptly, in the heart of KK Outlet phone reception is usually at a null, so go wire free for Von: Elsewhere opening on #FirstThursdays the 1st of May at 7pm.



Hawkes launch party at the Hoxton Hotel

Early reports suggest summer will last until mid November in 2014 so we’re packing the cool bag now and getting set to flock off for the afternoon down London Fields.

If you care to join us, the drink of the day will be our East End neighbours Hawkes and their delicately concocted ginger beer, which infuses a few funky flaves to get you smiling while you sip.

With Kiwi and Mandarin, its refreshing and spicy making you want to glug it back and if you are screwed for an opener just twist to cap and you are away.

Sample for your sweet-selves at the Hawkes Ginger Beer Indoor Summer Party taking place at the Hoxton Hotel on Wednesday the 23rd of April from 7pm till Sunrise.
